Milner prepared to leave Man City for regular football
Manchester City midfielder James Milner will be content to leave the club this summer as he looks to gain regular first-team football, according to the Metro.
The England international would be prepared to sacrifice playing Champions League football in order to be a regular starter, which he has not been at the Etihad Stadium.
Although he appeared in 31 of Man City’s 38 Premier League games this season, 14 of his outings came from the bench with Jesus Navas and Samir Nasri among those preferred by manager Manuel Pellegrini.
Everton and Tottenham are the two most interested parties, with the Merseyside club in particular lacking depth in wide areas, although should the deal come down to money alone, Tottenham would be in a better place to sign the man who joined Man City from Aston Villa in August 2010.
The Premier League champions are hoping to keep Milner as they see him as a useful option, but could decide to cash in on him to help comply with Financial Fair Play rules. However, nothing is likely to be decided until after the World Cup.
